hello. thank you for joining me. i'm jc hayward. last night lawmakers passed a measure preventing automatic tax hikes from hitting millions of americans. but tara mergener explains that
12:01 pm
deal did not include spending cuts, and lawmakers will soon be fighting over the debt again. >> reporter: president obama landed in hawaii this morning to resume his holiday vacation. he left washington late last night after lawmakers approved a bill that prevents a middle class tax hike and delays automatic spending cuts. congress and the white house struggled to get the deal done, and neither republicans or democrats seem pleased with the outcome. >> someone stop hitting you in the head with a hammer and you're supposed to say thank you so much for the relief. >> reporter: many voters are upset it took lawmakers so long to reach a compromise. >> i think we needed a deal. i'm not necessarily all together happy. >> reporter: the measure raises taxes on families making more than $450,000 a year and extends long-term jobless benefits for a year. but the package does not include spending cuts as many republicans voted against it. >> i would like to be speaking for this bill but i can't.
12:02 pm
>> reporter: congress steered away from this fiscal cliff at the last minute, but another showdown is just around the corner. in two months the treasury will need to increase how much the country can borrow and lawmakers must approve it. the last time congress fought over the debt ceiling, america's credit rating was downgraded. the president says that doesn't need to happen again. >> the one thing i think that hopefully in the new year we'll focus on is seeing if we can put a package like this together with a little bit less drama, a little less brinksmanship. >> reporter: the president will be trying to reach a debt ceiling deal with a new congress. winners from the november election will be sworn in tomorrow. tara mergener for cbs news, capitol hill. it is a small step to getting our fiscal problems in order, but only for a couple of months. the stopgap measure appears, however, to be having a positive effect on wall street. the dow above 200 points and

both the nasdaq and s&p 500 are up. of course there is reaction from taxpayers. our surae chinn is on capitol hill with more information. >> very dysfunctional. >> it's exciting. it's a little frustrating there's some kicking of the can. > reporter: even those who work and live close to capitol hill are frustrated at the procrastination of congress passing a late night bill to avoid falling off the fiscal cliff. but there is some satisfaction. >> a relief and that the stocks are showing -- [indiscernible] >> more than 98% of americans and 97% of small businesses will not see their income taxes go up. >> reporter: but oliver says he's part of the small group who will be paying higher taxes on his small business. >> it's all right. we've got to move forward somehow. >> reporter: all this does is set up more showdowns in the future so expect more late night faceoffs on capitol hill
12:04 pm
in the coming months. while the bill taxes the wealthiest families earning more than $450,000, the intensely divided house must now tack him what's not addressed in the bill, including raising the debt ceiling and sequestration reasons why democratic congressman jim moran voted against the measure. >> the problem is we set up three more fiscal cliffs, and all that's left is spending cuts. the only question we have to ask ourselves what programs do we cut them and how deep do we cut them. we'll look back at this night and regret it. >>it's frustrating to see the people go through the tough times and congress is not getting its job done. >> at least they're doing something. better than nothing. >> reporter: on capitol hill, surae chinn, 9news. the bill includes an extension of unemployment benefits for about two million americans. the bill does not include the payroll tax cut. so workers will be paying about 2% more in social security taxes and that means a smaller

12:11 pm
on death row. then last year, that conviction and death sentence were thrown out. judge jackson found prosecutorial error. he said that the prosecution in the case had withheld very important evidence that would have helped justin wolfe and said that the man needed to be retried. that did not happen within the time frame and last week he ordered his release and today the judge agreed to release him. so that ten days is up tomorrow and he may be released tomorrow at 5:00. if a stay is not granted. that stay is requested right now by the attorney general ken cuccinelli in the fourth circuit court of appeals. we'll find out tomorrow. we'll stay on this case and we'll have more for you this evening. back to you. i'm a little out of breath running down the stairs. >> peggy fox reporting live. we'll continue with this story throughout the evening. coming up, olga has the forecast. stay with us.

in loudoun, frederick, and charles counties by going to our website we're just four days away from the biggest football game. washington has seen in a long time. talking about the redskins. we're going to host the seahawks on sunday. playoff starts at 4:30. while we will not know for sure who the better team is until they take to the field, our reporter matt jablow is sizing up the two cities: seattle, washington, and washington, d.c. ♪ i feel like busting loose ♪ >> reporter: let's start with the sound tracks of the two cities. d.c. has go go and the inimmable chuck brown. seattle has grunge. washington has the wonderful wharf, a seafood lover's delight while seattle for some reason the lights and throwing their fish around, the pike
12:18 pm
place fish market. >> there's is a little more entertaining but we have really good fish here. >> reporter: washington has the monument. seattle has the needle. they make pleadges. we make legislation -- planes. we make legislation... slowly. >> so far we like it. >> reporter: washington has tourists. >> actually this is our first time to washington and it's lovely. >> reporter: seattle has techies. seattle actually has the wealthiest techy of all bill gates. while washington has one of the most notorious gates of all, watergate. and at the end of the day, seattle has a nice hot cup of starbucks coffee. >> 54-year history, one location. >> reporter: while we here in washington have a nice hot bowl of ben's chili. which is the better city? >> oh, no question, always washington. always washington. >> that was matt jablow reporting. guess what? this is the reds skins first home play -- redskins first home playoff game since the 1999 season. the last time we were nfc east
12:19 pm
division champs. we do know who the better team is. we do. i don't know about matt but i know it's the redskins. and even though some people grew up-- >> west coast. >> some people grew up -- i'm not saying any names but olga in washington. she loves the redskins now. >> but the redskins need this. >> yes, we do. >> and i want the redskins to win. let me be on the record. the forecast includes a look at that sunday game because it is a very, very important one for us and, you know, the game conditions do play a factor in the outcome of that game. for us today, we've really changed things up since this morning. we started out with overcast skies and chilly temperatures. we're still in a chill. it's become a little more breezy but our weather cam shows that the sunshine has broken out. into the afternoon we'll be mostly sunny. you'll want the sunglasses,
12:20 pm
especially for the drive time home but temperatures right now are pretty much where they're going to be for the remainder of the day. 36 at reagan national airport. we should hit a high round about 38 degrees. that's at the city center. that should happen near that 3:00 hour. that is it. by 6:00 we're still mostly sunny with just a few passing clouds, but once the sun sets, these temperatures plummet below freezing. if you have any evening plans, make sure you dress accordingly. earlier satellite and radar loop from the earlier hours has all that moisture pushing off shore. there's a stalled front down to our south and off toward the east. that's been the focus of some rain showers, but most of that staying in the carolinas. so we're looking pretty good region wide. holding at 36 right now for reagan national. maybe a couple of degrees. but if you notice, gaithersburg at 34. it's actually feeling like 26 because we have these gusty winds out of the northwest. winds sustained at 15 miles per hour but we're already seeing gusts close to 20 miles per hour into the afternoon. an 18 mile per hour gust this hour for andrews, dca and for
12:21 pm
manassas. so this is what we're going to see for the remainder. it does look like high pressure will remain in control for the next couple of days. we've cleared the way behind the front for some cooler and drier air. so by the drive time home, lots of sunshine. into the overnight hours, a passing cloud or two but for the most part we clear out for your forecast on thursday. looks like plenty of sunshine into thursday afternoon and evening and even friday is looking pretty good as well. we're going to stay cool and primarily dry as we head into the weekend. yes, it will be a little bit chilly for the redskins forecast as well. here's how we are looking so far. the highs today i'm projecting about 38 for reagan national. we'll stick to about 34 out toward rockville. a little bit warmer down toward the south. upper 30s to near 40 degrees. in all a chilly night tonight as we back down on those winds and clear our skies, all of us are going to plummet into the 20s. it will be middle to lower 20s for most of the metro area. 29 for the city center. but the good news is we're
12:22 pm
keeping our forecast in the green. so the seven days ahead look like this. 38 for friday. slight chance of a brief sprinkle or snow flurry early on saturday morning. but great for the reds skins game. stick around -- redskins game. stick around. we'll be back after this.

12:27 pm
this chicken. >> it's just like that. it's clean. none of these actually have salt in them so what you're going to want to do is you're going to add salt after you're getting ready to cook it because salt will draw the moisture out of the meat. next we have wild boar so i have some onions. we toss that out there -- that on there. we have olive oil. >> all of this is on >> fresh herbs. we throw that in there. >> i don't think i've had wild boar. >> it takes similar to pork. it's leaner. it's actually a little more healthy for you. so you're just -- -- you're just going to coat it with a little bit of white wine. you'd leave this in your refrigerator for overnight or just a couple of hours. >> the same thing with the chicken? >> the same thing with the chick gln we have the finished product. it looks very good. that's the chicken. >> last but not least we have our lamb. we have shallots, garlic, a little bit of smoked paprika,
12:28 pm
saffron, a sherry vinegar and olive oil. >> again it's on you let it marinade in your refrigerator. overnight would be great. this is the finished product. boy, it looks so good. congratulations. >> thank so you much. >> i want to come to itself wedding. -- to the wedding. come back and visit us at 5:00. have a great day.
